On August 28th, 2019 Linda C. (Laham) Sullivan, of Delaware, formerly of Mansfield and Brockton, passed away peacefully at her dream home, surrounded by her family, following her courageous battle with Ovarian Cancer. She was 64 years of age. All whom loved her will never forget her tenacity, wit, courage, grace and most of all her undying love and care for them.
Family was the foundation for her life, a value instilled in her by her own parents, the late Elias and Celia Laham. Linda was the dear and devoted wife of Kevin Sullivan, for over 42 years, which all began with a blind date on September 23rd, 1973 at the New England Dragway in New Hampshire. She was also the admired mother of her three children, Eric and his wife Christine, Kevin and his wife Amanda, and Jamie to whom she provided endless love, wisdom, and inspiration.
Linda was eldest of three children, with whom she created a lifetime of memories. Her treasured sister and best friend, Cynthia “Cin” Apgar who believed she put way too much tahini in her hummus and darling brother Mark and his wife Sheila. Linda was the loving “Auntie” to her niece and nephews, Taylor, Hunter, Terrence, and Jason. And most of all the proud and cherished “Thathee” to her four beautiful grandchildren Evelyn, Eli, Layla and Anya.
Other than family, there was nothing Linda loved more than being outdoors- the sound of ocean waves, the feeling of sand between her toes, and her kayaking adventures. She was also known for her skilled bargain hunting, whether it was coupon cutting, going through local sales flyers or single-handedly keeping stores like Ocean State Job Lot and The Dollar Store in business.
Linda graduated high school from Brockton High, then continued to college at Northeastern University where she got her Nursing Degree. She dedicated 40 years of her life to her nursing career at the Good Samaritan Medical Center, where she was the mentor and caretaker to so many. Nothing was more fulfilling to Linda than giving genuine one on one care to her patients. It was that passion that led her to a new start at Bayada Home Health Care, where she created a close bond with fellow nurses and felt rewarded by her work each day, until she retired in April of 2015. Linda was a lover and a fighter. During her battle with Ovarian Cancer she fought with bravery and courage, but most importantly her sense of humor. She was a beautiful and vibrant soul who loved to sing and dance, even in her final days she brought laughter and smiles to all those around her.
Please join us in celebrating her life, sharing her memory, and laying her to a blessed, peaceful rest.
